An excerpt from Mission-Central.org: Living Your Story
By Rachel Elwood, Support Staff
What’s your missions story? Do you come from a missions-minded church? Maybe you’ve been on a missions trip or two (or ten!), or you pour yourself into the kids who attend your church’s Wednesday night kids ministry. Or maybe you’ve just recently discovered this “missions thing” and what it means for believers to share their faith with their communities and the world.
But regardless of whether you’re a wide-eyed newbie or slightly cynical veteran like me (Come on, we’ve seen a lot!), we all share something in common: we truly want to know how God is moving in our world and where our place is in His work. We crave glimpses of hope that those who need Jesus are being reached. We want to know how we can get involved.
That’s why we created www.mission-central.org. On this multimedia blog, you can hear the voices of missionaries on the front lines of the Great Commission. Check out videos from all over, and learn creative ways to participate in missions. By using a variety of media, we want to show missions for what it is—not flashy or polished but real people doing real ministry to make a real impact.
